Antenna and RF Engineering Training, JOHANNA KINSLER,

The Antenna and RF Engineering training went well. I feel I understand the technical considerations of antennas much better now. This has helped me to articulate specifications to suppliers, customers, and colleagues.

The DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) Training Class was incredible. I was very impressed with the content and practices which were illuminated in this course by the instructor.
I look forward to taking my training back to my institution and recommending to
my teammates the benefits this course has provided.

As someone who processes the direct telecom bills for Facipties I was able to gain a better understanding of what SS7 is, how it relates to the work our engineers do (especially calculating trunks needed), and will trunks needed), and will be able hopefully to recognize its coding on our invoices.

The instructor was obviously very knowledgeable on the subject matter and yet was able to explain it in terms that even I, not being an engineer, could easily understand. Having spent years studying learning theories, I was impressed with the instructor’s ability to make class a success.

The instructor presents this material with excellent style. Some of the questions I’ve had since graduating college were answered during this class. The material on SDH/SONET, and ATM traffic routing was most enlightening. If you need to know about Telecom Traffic Engineering Concepts, this course is for you.

The course was excellent. The instructor’s presentation, knowledge, interaction with students and subject explanation were all excellent. The sections on RF engineering were the most relevant to my work. I found several directly applicable pieces of information by attendance at the course. I keep all book at my desk, but the RF Engineering Books are on right on top. I use them almost daily. If you are wondering about the various 2G/3G/4G Wireless communications technologies, how they work, and the advantages & disadvantages of each technology, then this course is for you.

I thought that the instructor was very capable. He kept a very technical and potentially “dry” subject interesting by using different methods of presentation. I came away feeling confident in my knowledge of GSM, GPRS, CDMA, CDMA2000 and UMTS after only one week! I was impressed that Tonex didn’t require that there be a large number of students to run the class. Probably the most impressive thing about the class was that the attendees were asked to rank all of the potential topics that could be covered for relevance to our job/situation, and the instructor modified the delivery of the class as we proceeded to fit those rankings. This indicated that the instructor was both very confident and capable in presenting on any content that might be desired on a moment’s notice! The color charts/diagrams were also very helpful!.

The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and well versed in all areas of wireless technologies. His experience as a consultant helped demonstrate theories and live applications used today and in the past. Having his knowledge and background helped everyone in the course with different backgrounds to learn various aspects of wireless applications. The instructor also asked for everyone’s background to better customize the course for our needs. Some had real-life applications while others work in a lab so he was concerned with having everyone get what they needed from the course without focusing too much on one topic.
